JESUS’ ROADSHOW IN JERUSALEM!
•Primary ministry was in Galilee, Samaria and Nazareth (Lk 9:51)
•10th & 14th Day of the month of Nisan
•Except for Jesus everyone else was unaware of their actions in some sense!
•Freedom For the Prisoners
•Sight for the Blind
•Setting the Oppressed Free
•Proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
(Lk 4: 16-19; Is 61:1-2)
•The Colt has not been ridden
•It is not a stray but owned by some-one/people who knew Jesus
•Jesus is sovereign over his arrangements…just like a King!
•His disciples – not just the 12 are part of a large contingent
•A cheering crowd but an unsettled city…a troubled group of Pharisees
•The Good Shepherd and the Messiah was present in Jerusalem
•The Kingly aspect of Jesus is ironical to his earthly life but very real in God’s plan
•It was not the Charisma of Jesus’s work on earth but his death that would bring God’s salvation to Israel and the Nations…fulfilling the Abrahamic covenant
